Supported by the cosmological theory behind Gann’s work, we also specialize in practical tools needed to analyze and trade the markets.
This category will specifically focus upon the books and courses that provide very specific and applied tools from Gann’s toolbox used for real time trading.
Not everyone has the skill, experience or desire to make forecasts of market phenomena, so they turn to experts who provide information to help anticipate market trends.
Our top analysts provide forecasts or reports for different markets to help traders understand market action and get educational guidance with trading or investments.
W.D. Gann’s original work is a critical element for any Gann researcher, but many find Gann’s deeper work challenging without help from well-seasoned analysts and traders.
We offer valuable secondary works presenting and developing Gann’s ideas: the best teachers in this field are not so much competitors, but fellow contributors to ongoing research.
The Golden Age of Technical Analysis extended from 1910 through 1960, when the greatest analysts lived and developed foundational principles.
Dr. Baumring selected the best works for his students, believing it best to study from the great masters.
Books by masters of the past have as much value for students today as they did back in their own day.
Zen and Chan are similar terms from Japanese and Chinese systems of Buddhism, but they originate from the Indian word Dhyana, loosely translated as "meditation".
Zen is a mind science, giving direct access to the core layers of mind.
The origin of Zen is in India, home of Buddhism. Allan Watt’s called it "Hinduism stripped for export".
Our catalog has fascinating fictional works which relate to our various fields of interest and present deep ideas from a dramatic perspective in a readable context.
Books like Gann’s "Tunnel Through the Air" fall into this category, along with Alchemical allegories and metaphysical mysteries.
The Precession of the Equinoxes, of vital importance in the ancient world, relates to the passage of our solar system through 12 cycles of 2620 years over a 25000 year period.
Ages of change (as in The Age of Aquarius) occur every 1 degree, taking 72 years, with longer cysles such as the Platonic Year, the Yugas, and the ages of Iron, Bronze, Silver and Gold.
W.D. Gann Works
We stock the complete collection of the works of W.D. Gann.
His private courses represent the most important of his writings, going into much greater detail than the public book series. Our 6 Volume set of Gann's Collected Writings includes supplementary rare source materials, and is the most reliable compliation of Gann's unadulterated vital work.
Dr. Jerome Baumring
The work of Dr. Baumring is the core inspiration upon which this entire website is based. Baumring is the only known modern person to have cracked the code behind WD Gann’s system of trading and market order.
Baumring found and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gann’s Law of Vibration.
There is no other Gann teaching that gets close to the depth of Baumring’s work.
An Esoteric Market Technician
About the Author
The Institute of Cosmological Economics recognizes George Bayer as one of the founding fathers in the development of Financial Astrology and Cosmological Economics.
Over the course of his life, Bayer dedicated his analytical and creative faculties to observing the mysteries that relate geometry with celestial occurrences and their manifestation as movements in the markets. As a market author, Bayer developed unique and idiosyncratic written approaches to sharing his hard-earned discoveries in books and courses. His highly creative, often humorous, and veiled exemplifications of complex planetary and geometric concepts provide a delightful voice to the library of any serious CosmoEconomic researcher. Bayer also achieved significant wealth and successes in his trading career.
Little is known about George Bayer’s life. He was born of Polish descent in Germany and moved to the USA just after 1900. He grew up in New York and developed an interest in the markets through trading Wheat on the speculative markets of New York and Chicago.
We know very little about Bayer’s life and the origins of his interest in astrology, markets and esoteric studies. The best information we have comes from his own semi-autobiographical novel – George Wollsten: Expert Stock and Grain Trader.
In the late 1930’s Bayer began producing his first set of financial treatises, introducing his geometrical, astronomical and astrological techniques for trading. These works were all quite short (under 100 pages), privately published in a mimeographed manuscript format, and are now extremely rare in their original editions. We have only seen one each of Bayer’s originals over the past 20 years.
Through these works, Bayer developed a reputation as an esoteric market analyst and specialist in the field. There are very few traders from past times who managed to develop this unusual combination of esoteric and financial principles, with Gann and Bayer being the premier examples of the classic Esoteric Analyst and Forecaster, or Cosmoeconomist, as we call them.
Bayer’s Middle Period
In 1940, Bayer’s published his Stock & Commodity Traders Hand-Book of Trend Determination. This work provides an excellent introduction to the methods used by George Bayer, beginning with the ideas first presented in Money, and refining them into precise rules for an applied trading system. It lays the ground work and principles in fairly simple terms, which will assist in understanding his other more complex works.
Over the next years, Bayer continued his research into even deeper studies in the Ancient Wisdom, time cycles and astrology, leading to his 3 final and most important works:
The Egg of Columbus (1942), is Bayer’s most mysterious and esoteric work. It is said to encompass the Great Secret of the Science of Time Cycles as understood by the Ancients, presented in a mere 18 pages. There is an age-old tradition of encoding the universal system in as short a treatise as possible, and Bayer claims victory in this task. There was a period back in the 1970’s when people were offering $5000 for a rare copy of this book.
Turning Four Hundred Years of Astrology to Practical Use (1944), is Bayer’s most technical and challenging work, delving deeply into a new form of astrology he developed which is centered around his 5-Fold Horoscope. This work is considered one of the more unusual and important works in the field of Financial Astrology, providing a bridge between the systems of the ancients and the moderns with Bayer’s original astrological contribution to the financial markets.
George Wollsten – A Fictionalised Autobiography
In 1946, Bayer penned what would become his most popular and well known book, a unique and partially autobiographical work named George Wollsten: Expert Stock & Grain Trader. Much like his own life, it tells the story of an immigrant to the USA who found success in the markets through hard work and Astrological studies.
Through an entertaining story, Bayer presents a wide-ranging exploration of chart analysis enriched by a deep understanding of practical market operations and guided by astronomical and geometrical principles of order. His imaginative account leads the reader through Wollsten's fictional existence, examining, explaining and putting into context each of his character's investment decisions or financial commitments, with the reasons behind them.
As in the esoteric tradition, this book contains many veiled references to planetary phenomena such as his famous work on ellipses, in which he describes the “Polish Ellipse”. It weaves an interesting thread of esoteric content through the story, providing critical references to ancient and important literature, while guiding the seeker through a fascinating web of ideas that must ultimately be solved by the reader in order to access the deeper, hidden wisdom.
George Wollsten is one of the most interesting and entertaining reads in market literature. It is more of a novel than a technical book and is the most accessible and enjoyable of Bayer’s works. We recommend it first to anyone curious about Bayer and wanting to have a taste. It’s one of THE GREAT market classics.
Bayer's Place in the Field of Financial Astrology
Bayer’s highly original mind singles him out as one of the 20th-century's deepest financial thinkers, discovering tools from the natural and esoteric sciences which helped determine market activity. He was the first to apply other astronomical parameters in forecasting financial markets. He introduced a method of Horoscope analysis known as the Five-Fold Horoscope and claimed that astrological progression of the moon over the points of such a horoscope produced vibration in the price of a stock or commodity.
As mentioned, George Wollsten is the best place to start, and for those who want to study everything he wrote, we have a collected edition of his works bound in 2 volumes at a discounted price, The Collected Works of George Bayer.

Gann gave much attention to grain markets, and in particular Wheat, Corn and Soybeans. Gann had a Wheat chart back to 65 BC, which Baumring took back to 1200 BC.
Long historical data made Wheat a premier market to study long term cycles, and grain markets depend on weather, a secondary phenomenon which Gann also studied and analyzed.
Biographies of market masters, traders and historical figures in our field.
Prandelli's work is popular with swing traders due to the usefulness of his Gann tools which project Key Price Levels and Cyclical Turning Points.
His courses use Gann's Planetary Longitude Lines and Master Time Cycle combined with his KEY Risk Management and Trading Strategies to produce10-15% monthly returns consistently.
The wisdom teachings of the Egyptian "Thoth" (the Greek Hermes) were preserved in the Hermetic Arcana, translated from Greek by Ficino during the Renaissance.
These trace back to the likes of Pythagoras and Solon (Socrates’ teacher), filtering through many channels to become the basis of Western Philosophy, Science and Esoteric traditions.
